Its offically Fall and now October, my favorite month of the year! This month also happens to contain my favorite holiday; Halloween! We have seen our favorite characters become Rockstars in the past 10 years or so. So, in celebration of the wonderful characters we love (or love to hate), I will be showcasing the coolest costumes and Halloween ideas for you here. This week is Harry Potter!

CARVE A POTTER PUMPKIN!
www.Zombiepumpkins.com has some really cool Pumpkin carving ideas. You can join up with their site to print up the templates!
ENTER THAT PUMPKIN INTO A CONTEST!
www.the-leaky-cauldron.org has a Harry Potter Themed Pumpkin Carving Contest going on right now.
Carve out a pumpkin and make an HP themed Jack O’Lantern in your favorite Halloween style and submit a photograph of it for judging. Your work can be scary or amusing or even a simple portrait of your favorite HP character but it must be your work. You do the carving. And it must be carved please; no painted pumpkins will be accepted since a painted pumpkin is not a Jack O’Lantern. If pumpkins are scarce or cost prohibitive in your area you may substitute an alternate fruit or vegetable that lends itself to carving.
Go here to read the rules and learn more.
AND FINALLY, GET A COSTUME!
There are oodles of cool Harry Potter costumes available from www.WBshop.com. That means they are the officially licensed costumes, yay! You just need to decide, do you want to a good guy or a bad guy?
BE ONE OF THE GOOD GUYS!
OR BE A BADDIE!
HAVE A FUN AND SAFE HALLOWEEN!
